Building the IoT – Connectivity and Security -

In my prior blog, Building the IoT: standards and hardware needs , I discussed how the "things," device hardware and their interoperability, needed to evolve in order for the IoT to grow and reach its full potential. The other IoT elements still under construction relate to the Internet. Both connectivity and security still need to mature. Short-range wireless networking, for instance, is another major IoT building block that needs work. It is used in local networks, such as: Bluetooth Zigbee 6LoWPAN Thread industrial protocols like WirelessHART With the latest versions of Bluetooth and Zigbee, both protocols can now transport an IP packet, allowing, as IDC represents it , a uniquely identifiable endpoint. A gateway/hub/concentrator is still required to move from the short-range wireless domain to the internet domain. For example, with Bluetooth, a smartphone or tablet can...
